04/09/2019 Download PDF Download Plain Text

Following a record-breaking 12,772 entries judged over 75 days, Great Taste, the world’s most revered food and drink awards, has reached its grand finale for 2019. The Great Taste Golden Fork for the best food or drink from Ireland was presented to Longueville House Beverages from Cork for its Longueville Mór Cider. A “perfectly balanced” 8% ABV cider made using Dabinett and Michelin apples from the cider maker’s own orchards, this is the only brandy cask fermented cider currently produced in Ireland.


With an “amazing aroma of sweet apples on the nose, followed by a fresh and crisp taste with depth and a clean finish”, the Longueville Mór Cider impressed at every stage of the blind-tasted judging process. Rising to the top among hundreds of other entries from Ireland, the cider was celebrated as the best tasting product in its region at the Great Taste Golden Fork Dinner held on Sunday 1 September at the InterContinental Park Lane Hotel, London, where over 350 guests from the world of fine food gathered to discover this year’s stars of food and drink.
